Thank you, Sir. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.

Laura Franz, Executive Director of TLS Veterans visited the club to discuss the organization, services they provide to local veterans, and their success at helping veterans get back on their feet.  The club donated $100 to TLS Veterans to help in their ongoing mission to provide resources to veterans while they assimilate back into civilian life.
Professional musicians Sofiya Kyrylyuk & Lyudmila Kakisova performed Bach, Brahms and Bartok at a special event to raise $1,000 toward the End Polio Now Campaign.

The Huntley Rotary Club attended Huntley's Annual Fall Fest to showcase a ShelterBox at its booth. Members were able to help visitors understand what a ShelterBox is, and answer questions about Rotary. Special thanks to area Boy Scouts for helping to set up the tent for visitors to see.
At it's October 11th Regular Meeting, Huntley Rotarians again sponsored a ShelterBox for those in need. Typically the ShelterBox units are deployed to areas hit by natural disaster as a way for families to have shelter and dignity while dealing with devastation. Each ShelterBox contains a large, durable tent, cook stove, pots and utensils, bedding and other items to help families cope with the loss of their home.

Pictured here, President-elect Karen Hutchings met Dr. Sylvia Whitlock at the PETS Conference.
Dr. Whitlock has been in Rotary for over 25 years, but when she first joined her club in California the club's charter was revoked because they had admitted a woman. At the time, women were not permitted to be members of Rotary International. She and her club sued Rotary International and changed the face of Rotary forever.  She went on to be the first woman Rotary President and served as District Governor for District 5300 in 2012-13. 
On Tuesday, February 9 the Huntley Rotary Club welcomed two new members.  Pictured are Kevin Vaughn and Stacy Thompson with Club President, Jim Uszler.
